Intricate Questions.

After an old man's death, in gold was found,
Left to his family, eight thousand pound,
To be bestow'd as his last will directed,
Which did provide that none should be neglected;
For to each son, there being in number five,
Three times each daughter's portion he did give ;
The daughters also were to receive
Double the sum he to their mother gave.
His daughters all in number were just four ;
Their gold in weight, eight times their mother's store.
Now, that this will may justly be fulfill'd,
What must the widow have, and what each child ?
